It’s Hard to Picture My Life Without Having Studied at ISG

ONYA MERIL, Dhahran British Grammar School

Did my school and teachers influence my decision when choosing the college? To a certain extent, yes! I determined that I wanted to study music at university before doing my A Levels, so I applied to Berklee separately from my UCAS application.

I Found My Passion in Sports and in People

FRANCO GERBER, ISG Dammam, DBGS & Dhahran High School

Studying at ISG and  living in an international setting provided me with the ability to look at different perspectives before making decisions.

Jubail Academy Was Unique for Its Students and Teachers


To my fellow ISG Alumni – networking is critical, especially in the early years of your career. ISG alumni are diverse – people from so many countries, all with a strong tendency for success and the special bond of a shared Saudi experience.

I Definitely Think My School Experience Was Special


I’ve spent the past ten years in different parts of the world, meeting different types of people, and no one had the opportunities or the quality of education I had at DEMS and DHS.

I Benefited from Top Quality Teachers

RANDALL BROWN, Jubail Academy 

My advice for current students of ISG Jubail is to be intentional in making friends with people from different countries and cultures.

I Am Proud of the Values and Ethics We Acquired from School


My school was my second home. Its diverse culture and intellect makes it a unique establishment from which to learn and grow.
